      Cetech's Multiple Land Use Dimensioning allow Users Precise Control over Land and Resource Use Classifications:
    1. ACTIVITY: An observable characteristic of land based on actual use.
    2. FUNCTION: The economic use or type of establishment using the land.
    3. STRUCTURE: Type of structure or building type on the land.
    4. SITE: Overall physical development character of the land.
    5. OWNERSHIP: Legal and quasi-legal ownership constraints on the land.
    6. DEFAULT: Fallback classification of land based on observable characteristics.
    7. LAND INTERESTS: Classification of Land Use based on Private and Public Interests in the land.

      Defines Land Use in 2 NAIC/SIC Major Categories:
    1. NAIC CODE: Classification of Land Use based on North American Industrial Class code.
    2. SIC CODE: Classification of Land Use based on Standard Industrial Class code.

      Defines Land Use in 1 Homeland Security Major Category:
    1. HOMELAND SECURITY: Classification of Land Use based on Emergency Management constraints on the land or resources.

      Institutional Controls: A non-engineered instrument, such as an administrative and/or legal control, that helps to minimize the potential for human exposure to contamination and/or protects the integrity of an engineering remedy by limiting land or resource use.
    1. INSTRUMENTS: An administrative measure and/or legal mechanism that establishes a specific set of land or resource use restrictions.
    2. OBJECTIVES: The intended goal of an IC in minimizing the potential for human exposure to remaining contamination and/or protecting the integrity of an engineering control by limiting land or resource use in a particular media.
    3. ENGINEERING: A physical technology implemented to minimize the potential for human exposure to contamination by means of control or remediation.
    4. EVENTS: Any occurrence or action taking place on a specific date or over a period of time, for which data may be collected, processed, distributed, or used for purposes related to ICs.
    5. GOVREGS: eg. Zoning, Permits, Hazard Mitigation Plans, Land Use Master Plans and the like.
    6. ENVIRONMENTAL INTERESTS: eg. NPDES General Permit, Stormwater Permit
    7. USE/RESTRICTIONS: eg. Limit Future Land and Resource Use, Limit Groundwater Activities.

    CEtechnology's Land Based Classification Programs are Designed for Local Government, Higher Education, School Districts, Military Bases, and Private Business Planners.

    What Are You Waiting For? Local Communities (Governments, Higher Education, School Districts, Military Bases, and Private Business) Have to Take "Emergency Matters" Into Their Own Hands! Stop Waiting for Federal, and State Governments to Bail You Out! Recent Experiences in Dealing with Natural Disasters tells you Otherwise.

    Local People Must Step Up and Take the Lead on Campus/Community Emergency Management and Homeland Security. It's Time for Local Action! After All It's Your Home, It's Your Life. Learn Now to Plan Local Land Use Around Environmental Protection, Emergency Management, Homeland Security, and Economic Development While Visualizing Your Data on Computerized Maps (GIS).

    CEtechnology Products place Emergency Management, Environmental Protection, Land Use Planning, Permit Tracking, Institutional Controls, Facility Siting, and Hazard Mitigation where the action is. Analyze what's vulnerable, what's critical, what's been threatened in the past; what's helping the response, what's helping prevent the danger; what shows that we're using our dollars wisely and what fits with the other funds being spent.

    Why CEtech? CEtechnology's Unique Community Vision:

    Towns, Campuses, School Districts, and Military Bases have evolved with concerns common to many small cities with their increasing complexity of land use, infrastructure, transportation, environmental health and safety, technology, and the provision of services.

    Cetechnology planning guides and databases can help you address these issues while extending your reach locally, regionally, even worldwide through the internet. Above all else they make communities (people and property) safer via state-of-the art Risk Management!

    • We know Local Government! Our Institutional Controls, Land Use Master Plan Template and Software serves as a planning standard to help guide economic, environmental, emergency management, and technology growth within your community.

    • Our School District and Higher Education Guides and Software backstop administrative and academic decision making processes. Our clients include colleges and universities as well as urban and suburban school districts big and small.

    • We extend local government planning concepts to military base redevelopment. Our Land Use Master Plan Guide (MS Word) and Software helps them make the necessary adjustments to address base closures, new construction, or a move into the new economy.
